Peppermint Perfection

I’m not a real huge fan of peppermint.  Not by a long shot.  But there’s something about this time of year that makes the taste tolerable.  Infact, I downright ADORE peppermint flavored anything during the holidays.  I knew this little number would be a holiday favorite in NO time.  Paired with my favorite holiday drink, peppermint punch {peppermint ice cream, baileys, and ginger ale}, this is absolute peppermint perfection!

 

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT PRETZELS

recipe via Peppermint Plum

1 bag butter snaps pretzels

1 bag hershey’s candy cane kisses

1 bag m&m’s {I used the green dark chocolate candy pieces!}

This couldn’t be easier.  In addition to a hot oven and peppermint cravings, this is what you’ll need…

It’s so easy your kids can help, too!  Even the big ones ;)  And trust me when I say you’ll want their help…you don’t want to unwrap all those kisses alone!!!!

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and start lining up the butter snaps.  You can fit quite a bit on a baking sheet, so don’t be shy.  Unwrap the kisses and place them in the center of the pretzel.  I actually used two bags of kisses so I could make A LOT!  And you’ll DEFINITELY want to do the same!!!!!

Bake at 200 for about 5-8 minutes or until the kisses start spreading over the pretzels.  Keep your eye on them so they don’t completely melt through!!!!  Remove from the oven and place a little chocolate M&M in the middle of the kiss.

You’ll want to go at this alone because the chocolate is pretty hot and you don’t want to scorch any little fingers :)  I removed the pretzels from the pan and transferred them to the fridge to cool for about 20 minutes. 

Now, if you’re giving these as a little gift {which we did}, you’ll want to quadruple the batch.  For real. We couldn’t.stop.eating.  Talk about ADDICTING!!!!!!  These little chocolate peppermint pretzels are TO DIE FOR in every sense of the word!!!!!  Try them and see for yourself!  But get ‘em quick!!  These candy cane kisses won’t be available for long!!!!
